We can make Almost Anything....
The aim of the Computer-Aided Design week assignment was learning Raster and Vector Software. To learn to design in 2D and 3D modeling softwares and Explore design softwares.
Raster is a computer program that allows users to create and edit images interactively on the computer screen and save them in one of many "bitmap" or "raster" formats such as JPEG, PNG, GIF and TIFF.(from wikipedia)
In Raster Design I tried to use GIMP and PHOTOSHOP.when I Was Instructor in computer lab that time I taught photoshop to students. so I know littlebit about photoshop. Then I started Learn Gimp. Gimp is an open source and free software. so I downloaded it. When I was learning Gimp, I understand Gimp is almost similar to photoshop. That's why I learned Gimp early.
Gimp is easy to use than photoshop. so firstly I worked on this software.
Image size: Image on my homepage was 2mb, I want to compress it. So I used the Gimp raster software to compress it.
I made one more design in GIMP. In this software I created Pencil Drawing Effect.1. Open image and created a Duplicate layer twice. then I was going to Coloures tools and Selected Hue-Saturation cammand.
I am Familier with adobe Photoshop.I tried to make somthing new in photoshop.1.Firstly, I downloaded brick photo on the internet. after downloading I open this photo is in photoshop. the I was going to layer and make duplicate layer. when I was clicking on duplicate layer open small window in home screen. then I go to document and choose a New. and give the name of the layer and clicked on OK. After Clicking I was go to Filter Tool then going to Blur and chooseGaussian Blurfor bluring brick image.and give the Blur Radius is 3.0 and clicked on OK
I Read on Wikipedia about Raster design then I under is Vector is a computer program that allows users to compose and edit vector graphics images interactively on a computer and save them in one of many popular vector graphics formats, such as EPS, PDF, WMF, SVG, or VML.
In vector design I used Inkscape software.Inkscape software is open source.it is 2D design software and also easy to use.In Inskscape I tried to making simple paramatric.I used simple box and make paramatric. 1. I am taking one simple box and gave dimension of this box. dimension is in mm.
CorelDraw is a vector graphics editor developed and marketed by Corel Corporation.CorelDraw is designed to edit two-dimensional images such as logos and posters.
In Vector design, I used graphics design software is Corel Draw. I have worked on this software since last 1.5 years. so, I comfort of this software. I am familiar with this SoftwareHere,I was making My final project product Logo in this Software.
In vector design, firstly I was using Google Sketchup. I know this software very well. Google Sketchup is an open source tool for designing and easy to understand. With this software I tried to make a bangle design. for making design I did following steps.1.In this software firstly I took rectangular shape. then I draw a right angle triangle in rectangular shape and the other part was removed by Erasor.
FreeCAD is an open-source parametric 3D modeler made primarily to design real-life objects of any size. I have not used FreeCAD before this. I do not know any hotkeys so my way of doing things is highly inefficient. so, I Interested to learn this software. In this Software I learned their commands, their shapes and how to use it. its really different to other vector softwares.
I learned Basic tools in this software.so I was not making perfect object.I was made a simple box and extrude it using circles for learning.1.Firstly, I took rectangle shape and drag on graph page.then I made edge Constraint using Symatraic tool.
For the first time I used fusion 360 for 3d modeling, So now I learn the 3d design for visualization, cutting and printing. As a new student of the fusion 360 I'm trying to make a design using parameter tools. This is the wonderful tools for making a parametric design. I am trying to make a simple flower pot design in rectangular shape.For making rectangular flower pot design I did following steps
SolidWorks is a solid modeling computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided engineering (CAE) computer program that runs on Microsoft Windows.
I rarely used Solidworks. but I Knows tools and commands a lot of them. For 3d design I preferred Solidworks softwares for designing a Display for my final project.1.open Solidworks then clicked on file and take a New file.then clicked on part.I designed a differnt parts of my final project display.after open home screen of solidworks I selected Front plane.shortcut key for selected plane is keyboard Spacebar Button.then going to Sketch tool and draw a rectangular shape on front Plane and gave the dimension is 800 X 400 mm.then I extrude it on 1.5mm
Secondly I made Paramatric designsfor paramatric design I choosed three different shapes.Circle,triangle and square. following screenshots shows my paramatric designs
Thirdly In solidworks I also did Animate a Assembly1.I selected front plan and Draw a rectngular shape in Sketch with 70 X 70 X 100mm dimension.then selected side plane and draw a circle with 22 radius.then I was going to search bar and search Thread.after opening therad cammand then I selected two edges of circle and clicked ok. its looks like fit for Skrew.
After Animation I made a Video and uploaded on You tube.then gave a youtube link here
You can Download Original Files HERE.
In 2d designing learned advance tools in photoshop. I can edit the image and also use to reduce the file size in GIMP. SolidWorks is a great software. It has parametric that means if you edit measurement of object in a parts it will automatically update in the assembly file. I am using Inskape for simple parametric design. I am familiar with Corel so I was making different logos. I lntroduce tools of free CAD and Fusion 360.this assignment I really enjoyed it for doing something in designing.
